Eco-Mat Subsurface Irrigation: How to Install the Eco-Mat

Hunter Industries’ Eco-Mat is a bold new in

All Product Videos

Features

Designed to suit a variety of hard-to-irrigate areas,

 the Eco-Mat uses a specifically engineered combination of Hunter's fleece-wrapped, inline emitter tubing (Eco-Wrap) and specialized fleece to evenly disperse water from beneath the surface. The system is designed to be installed in the soil to be irrigated, directly under the plant material. When water is emitted, the Eco-Wrap fills and, in turn, saturates the Eco-Mat. Since there’s never water on the surface, high-traffic turf areas in places like amusement parks, city parks, and commercial complexes can be used all day without the need to budget time for overhead irrigation or worry about vandalism. The Eco-Mat not only makes subsurface drip irrigation a viable solution — it makes it a great one.

The Eco-Mat is also proven to be a highly efficient solution for green roof irrigation. Green roofs use specially engineered soils or growing media that allow for drainage at a much higher rate than natural soil, which poses challenges for growing plants. The Eco-Mat eliminates these challenges by delivering water to 100% of the irrigated areas and holding a 1/2 gallon of water in every square yard of the mat. When the Eco-Mat is saturated, it provides a reservoir of water from which the plants can draw, ensuring healthy vegetation all-year-round.

Key Benefits

Anti-siphon feature and fleece wrap protect against debris and root intrusion
Saves 20 to 40% more water than standard products due to superior capillary movement of water to the entire root zone, promoting healthier root growth
Non-draining, pressure-compensating emitters open/close simultaneously, maximizing efficiency
Check height of 6' minimizes system drainage and runoff
